Tasting Notes
Mateus Rosé Original has an attractive pink hue. It has fresh acidity with an intense bouquet of red berries and a delicate floral note. On the palate, it is well balanced and has a soft and slightly fizzy finish
History
The Mateus brand was established in 1942 by Fernando Van Zeller Guedes. The brand is most famous for its Mateus Rosé in the iconic flask-shaped bottle, designed to replicate soldiers' hip flasks in World War I. Today, the wine making is looked after by Miguel Pessanha, who has a Masters in Oenology from the University of Bordeaux. His strong focus on quality wine making has contributed to the continuing sales growth for what is the UK's 4th best-selling rosé.
Regional Information
Miguel sources grapes from throughout Portugal, but Mateus is based primarily on the Baga grape, which is the principal variety in Bairrada, where the winery is situated.

Vinification Details
Fermentation is carried out slowly, with no skins, in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. Fining is followed by cold stabilisation, after which the wine is filtered and bottled. A blend of Baga, Rufete, Tinta Barroca and Touriga Franca, the wine wears its 15 grams of residual sugar well, as the balance with the acidity is cleverly done to give a wine that, if tasted blind, would surprise many.

Pleasantly surprised

I got the mini version free on my shopping and I wasn't disappointed. Beautiful tasting wine. Doesn't even need to be mixed with lemonade as it's pleasant alone.  Definitely would buy!!!

Very nice

I was given a miniature bottle free in my shopping and so glad as it was lovely, it went down a treat. I have now ordered 2 big bottles on my next shop.

Lovely wine, very lightly sparkling, nice bottle!

As a picky rosé drinker that knows nothing about wine i tried this simply because of the funny bottle. I wasn't disappointed, i could tell you it had watermelon undertones with a hint of running horses but to be honest it just tasted good, very lightly sparking but not fizzy and was great paired with a bag of crisps on a Saturday night! Love it!
